|Gun Crimes (unexpectedly) Decrease in Virginia Bars and Restaurants||Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC): Impossible to Conceive’ Holder Not Aware of Gunwalker|
I’m an agnostic, my wife an atheist. Yet we both have deep respect for the values and beliefs of Christianity, and for the Christians who hold them. We’re thankful to live in a nation that was founded on the goodness of Christianity. We don’t have to believe in God to believe that values taught in the Bible are a good way to fashion and lead your life and to shape a country.
And we’re both huge Rick Perry supporters.
Via PJ Media:
Nevertheless, who am I to talk? As the title of this essay indicates, I am an agnostic.
That may be one of the few things I share with the incumbent president since it’s hard to believe that he is even remotely devout. Recent liberal Democrats, Clinton and Obama, have a kind of wink-wink relationship with religion, largely attending church for political purposes. This is particularly true of Obama who, as we all know, rarely attends now, but spent two decades in the fold of the execrable race-hustler Jeremiah Wright, a man who would make Elmer Gantry blush. If his allegiance to the reverend wasn’t for political purposes, what was it? Let’s hope it was anyway. If he looked to Wright for spiritual guidance, Obama is suffering from some kind of delusional psychosis.
So what this agnostic observes is a general atmosphere of religious phoniness — a baseline hypocrisy — on the liberal side and what is often genuine religious faith on the conservative side. (Not all, of course. A number of libertarians are agnostic.).
Frankly, I prefer honesty. So I respect Perry for his faith. And, again as we all know, this country was founded on bedrock principles of religious tolerance, which some modern liberals tend to forget includes people who actually believe in God. Personally, I admire Perry’s belief, even envy it to some extent, because I am reaching the point in life at which I would be delighted if someone could convince me of an afterlife.
Well said, Roger. And we agree.
